THE TALMID-CHAVER STORY
The year was 1983. It was an exciting time to be newly-religious. With all the love and support of a traditional Jewish family, Ron-Ami (Rob) Meyers lacked the tools to grasp the main subject of study at yeshiva: The Talmud.

The ancient words: Ki MiTzion Tetze Torah U’Dvar Hashem M’Yerushalayim (“For out of Zion the Torah goes forth and the word of Hashem from Jerusalem”) led Ron-Ami on a personal quest for the ideal yeshiva, which he found in Jerusalem. He spent an eye-opening year with master teachers: Their focus on key Talmudic phrases and logical structures opened up a fascinating new world of classical learning to the recent college graduate.

The impact of that year and seven more years of yeshiva inspired Ron-Ami to dedicate his life to Jewish education and outreach.  For the last two decades, Rabbi Meyers has been educating students of all ages and backgrounds in both the United States and Israel. Since 2008, Rabbi Meyers has become known as someone able to translate his success in the traditional classroom to the virtual classroom.

The launch of Talmid-Chaver makes structured, skill-based Talmud study available to Jews everywhere. Talmid-Chaver guides motivated students through the Sea of Talmud.  Its crisp, clear text-based video shiurim enable students to:

  • identify the key Talmudic terms that highlight the direction of a sugyah
  • uncover the assumptions of the Gemara and grasp its logic
  • internalize their learning through multiple-choice quizzes and vocabulary reviews

With free consultations for educators, Talmid-Chaver looks forward to bringing its method to Jewish classrooms around the world.

WHAT WE’VE ACCOMPLISHED AND WHERE WE’RE HEADED
Since the autumn of 2018, we have published ten Talmud courses, and the response has been gratifying. We now hope to move to the next level, and by the summer of 2020, to add an additional twenty-five courses to our site.

Now, we invite you to be our partner in this historic project.  Choose from a wide array of partnership levels. Any and all contributions are greatly appreciated!

We look forward to working with you to realize this dream!

Talmid-Chaver: Your Path to Independence in Talmud Study
Jerusalem District, Israel

Talmid-Chaver draws on Rav Ron-Ami Meyers' extensive experience in the classroom, broader community, and live online - and combines it with his voice training as a broadcaster. What emerges is a refreshing new initiative: Talmid-Chaver's self-paced guided Talmud learning allows students, young and old, to unpack the richness of a sugyah in Gemara. With its step-by-step explanation of language, structure and logic, and self-testing in the sugyah's content and vocabulary, Talmid-Chaver offers a true window into the richness, sophistication and joy of classical Gemara learning.
